Surface refinement of mass glass production

At present, toxic chloride compounds are used in hot end tempering, which on the one hand make complex extraction systems necessary and on the other hand expose employees in the relevant work area to health hazards.

By using a new technology, the aim of this project was to prove that a reduction in pollutants can be accompanied by an improvement in the quality of the glass. This should make it possible to produce thinner-walled and thus weight-reduced glass.

With the help of the research project, equipment for the flat glass and hollow glass industry was developed and brought to market.
